During the Houston series Stephen Curry wore a Run TMC hat in his post-game press conference in honor of the infamous trio that put Golden State on the map in the early 1990's.
Last week before the Warriors finished their 4-1 series over the Rockets the 'M" in the TMC, Mitch Richmond spoke to the media prior to Golden States match-up between the Houston Rockets.
"I saw that he was wearing the hat," Richmond said proudly of Curry.
Richmond was on hand to discuss his induction into the 2016 Bay Area Sports Hall of Fame on Monday, May 16th at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco along with Raymond Chester, Anne Warner Cribs, Jeff Kent and Peter Macgowan.
The core of Run TMC and the heartbeat of the Golden State Warriors for the three years he suited up for the Warriors between 1988-1991 earning Rookie of the Year honors and a NBA Championship with the Lakers during his 14 year career.
The former fifth overall selection of the 1988 NBA Draft Richmond now an assistant coach with St. John's with former Warriors teammate Chris Mullin, was traded to the Sacramento Kings for Billy Owens in 1991 after coming off a magical season with Golden State in the 1990-1991 season.

When asked if this one of his highest honors to date, Richmond told Sports in the Bay he jokingly said that his ultimate goal was to be a 'model.'
"Basketball has been great to me, I'm still following the ball."
A member of the 1996 USA Basketball team that played in the summer Olympics in Atlanta, Richmond averaged more than 20.0 points per game in 10 consecutive seasons and is 1 of 41 players to ever reach the 20,000 point threshold in NBA history (20,497).
Here are some of Richmond's accolades:
* A member of 1988 and 1996 USA Men's Basketball Olympic teams winning bronze and gold medals.
* Elected into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2014.
